Decision details

Procurement of Short Term and Emergency Temporary Accommodation

Decision Maker: Policy & Resources Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Current contracts are ending and so this is to seek permission to undertake re-procurement of accommodation that is managed on our behalf.


RESOLVED: That the Committee


1.    Agreed to procure short term and emergency temporary accommodation via a new dynamic purchasing system (DPS).


2.    Agreed that option 2 as set out in paragraph 3.9 should be used to develop the specification for the DPS. This service level is anticipated to create a minimum budget pressure of £0.300m requiring a funding commitment within the 2020/21 General Fund budget. If this exceeds available resources following announcement of the Local Government Financial Settlement, this would require equivalent savings from elsewhere across General Fund services.


3.    Noted the indicative numbers of short term and emergency temporary accommodation units required in each year as shown in the table in Appendix 1.


4.    Delegated authority to the Executive Director of Housing, Neighbourhoods and Communities in consultation with the Director of Finance & Resources, to:

(i) Procure and award the DPS referred to in 2.1 with a duration of up to four (4) years; and

(ii) Award and enter into call-off contracts under the DPS referred to in 2.1.
